As part of DCAL's outreach programme to people involved in politics, Stephen Lloyd MP, Liberal Democrat MP for Eastbourne, visited DCAL on 12 June 2012 to find out more about its research. During his visit DCAL's Deputy Director, Professor Gary Morgan and Co-Director Dr Mairéad MacSweeney gave a presentation on deaf children's development. Stephen is particularly interested in DCAL's work, having been hard of hearing from childhood. Amongst other present commitments he is one of the Vice Chairs of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Deafness.
